THANK YOU, SGT, FOR YOUR SERVICE.
And you think a Democrat would protect your individual liberty? The current track record says no.
Sorry, I meant 8 hours per day, not per week.
Abuses exist, no argument there, but as a fereral employee, the abuses work bothways. I know people who do not put in a full days work, but I also know some who work more than 8 hours a week,and sometimes on the weekend with no extra pay, which by the way, is very illegal. To say that all federal workers abuse the system is a generalization that is inherently wrong. I'm sure there are many employees in the private sector that abuse their system. Someday, someone will write an opinion pointing out how much those people cost us because their costs are passed on to the general public by increased prices.

YOU GO GIRLS!
After this hand shake is over, I'm going to wash my hands. I have a friend who just got back from a month in Israel working near Gaza. We talked about the action. One point that is not covered, at least strongly enough, is that the Hamas rockets are intentionally shot off to hurt and mame Israeli non-combatants. So even though the IDF is trying to warn civilians of impending attacks, Hamas has no intention of warning Iraeli civilians and is hoping for a high civilian casualty number. If it weren't for Iron Dome (of which my friend was very impressed) Israeli casuialties would be much much higher. Where is the world-wide condemation of Hamas' actions?
Bebe for US President!
...progressive/RICH Marxist politician Can you see the contradiction?
I was sucked into the various predictions by the conservative talking heads who predicted Romney would not just win, but bulldose Lord Barry. Now, they are doing it again. I often heard them say Quinnipac (not sure of the spelling) was a bogus pol. Turns out that poll was pretty accurate. Keep an eye on that one.
Sadly, I'm not impressed with any of the current "front runners".
